Early spring means nothing is hidden by vegetation and this old barn near Rainster Rocks shows all it's textures on a sunny day at the beginning of March. I love to see the textures of ruins in black & white and here, whilst the bushes that screen the site in summer are bare, the capacity of limestone to show every possible shade of grey is on display. I took a while to realise why I preferred this shot to similar ones of the same subject - it is because there are a number of diagonals that join elements - for example, one arm of the cross on the right points to the top right corner and the line of the roof on the right is carried on by the collapsed wall on the left. We generally prefer images where the components flow one into another.
